Wheels and grille

    I found a good deal for a package, tires and wheels for $900 total. But it's 17 inch wheels, I have 15. Is there anything I need to do since it is a different size? Maybe some suggestions.

    And I dislike the 67 grille style, with the chrome plating in front of the grille. More of a fan of the bullet type, without the plating. This way I'll have more room for my horns... :whis

    Is this easy to do? Just need a push in the right direction...

    I have 17 X 8 rims with 245/45/17 tires.
    But to be honest , I like CMAYNA's car SHAG has the better choice. He has 16 inch wheels which still has that retro look.Love it.
    Grill , never saw a car with the grill mounted more to front of the car.Don't think it will look better.I have mounted 2 high beam bulbs behind the grill.Its tight but doweble.

    Hmm I see. But would I need to do anything extra? Like spacers or something when I changed the wheel size? Or am I just thinking it's harder than it really is

    Dave,
    It's just my own taste but I find 17 rims being too big for my personal tastes. For a very stock look, stay with 15 but tires are getting harder to find. Thus I went 16 and am very happy with it. I'm running 225-50-16's.

    Grill - Are you saying you want that area all black? I believe there are all black grills available such as:

    I've heard about others who've made their own grills with different screen materials from the local hardware store. I would think that a 68 grill would fit a 67.

    Here's KBMWRS's 67 with a black grill.

    Re: Wheels and grill

    Yes I like that black grill.
    Where do you buy your tires at? Also looking for black torque thrusters too

    Any local tire dealer who sells Yokohama's.
